Reducing your household waste is easy to do and best of all, it will save you money. More than 30 percent of most household garbage is either paper packaging or food scraps.
You can easily recycle all kinds of plastic coated, taped and stapled cardboard, mail pieces and packaging. You can compost yard waste, food-soiled paper and napkins, pizza delivery boxes and kitchen scraps. Learn more about what goes in each bin and how to recycle other items here.
Your bill is based on the size of your garbage container; recycling and compost are already included. Swap your 32-gallon cart for a 20-gallon mini-can and save more than $5 per month. Change from a 64-gallon cart to a 45- or 32-gallon cart, and reduce your bill by one-third to one-half!
